    New film name

    Looking at the recent posts, I was struck by the name of Panatomic-X and what a brilliant bit of marketing this is. If you were going to introduce a new film onto the market, what would you call it to guarantee sales?

    Kodachrome
    "When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

    For B&W- Silver Bullet- most people spend decades searching for it.
    For Color- Chromakode- for those that miss Kodachrome.

    Well, if you want to appeal to all the hip young kiddies, how about:
    Kodagram
    Facechrome
    Impossibly Silverchrome Holgography 3000-X (every new digital camera has to have an X in it, so should film I suppose)
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    Digital.
    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    I always wondered if someone who put Panatomic in their Nikon Photomic were at danger of radiation poisoning...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
